One of the keys to leadership, Vijay Eswaran says, is knowing that telling people what to do isn’t part of it. He says that someone who has the attitude of a real leader is someone who is serving others. He got this piece of advice from his father at a young age and he has seen how it’s true many times.
He says that to truly succeed in life and business you need to put others before yourself. Many extraordinarily successful people in history have also had this attitude, he points out, such as Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.
Another key to leading is having a clarity about what you are trying to achieve. Vijay Eswaran says that you can only communicate your vision to your team when you can clearly explain it to them in detail. By doing so you can unify the whole team around a single goal which makes them both more engaged and more successful in accomplishing the vision set out before them.
Another key to leading a great life and being successful, Vijay Eswaran says, is that you need to recognize that fear is one of the best motivators to grow as a person. People are often afraid of change or things they don’t know much about.
According to Entreprenuer, Brian Torhcin says you shouldn’t live your life this way but instead embrace fear and learning about new things. You never know what you’re going to uncover when you attain new knowledge and insight into things you hadn’t known anything about because you were afraid of it.
